Using Amazon SES Auto-Tags

Amazon SES automatically provides a number of message tags, called auto-tags, to help you categorize your emails. To use auto-tags, you do not need to specify message tags when you send the email, but you must still specify a configuration set.


If you publish your events to Amazon CloudWatch and you want to use auto-tags, you must explicitly define a dimension value for the auto-tags when you set up the CloudWatch event destination.

The following table shows the auto-tags that Amazon SES provides.

Auto-tag name Description


The name of the configuration set associated with the email


The caller's AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM) identity


The domain of the "From" address


The IP address that the caller used to send the email


The IP address that Amazon SES used to send the email
